Sophie and I were walking home today when we discovered a ladybird party. More ladybirds then either of us had ever seen in one place at one time had gathered on a sign and on the next few signs along the path. Sophie took one of the ladybirds home to eat the aphids on our rose bush. Maybe we should… Read more →
Here are some recent Annie-Mo pictures. Just like her big sister and one of her older brother’s, Annie is very into shoes. They don’t even need to be hers or fit perfectly. She loves being outside and enjoys climbing up onto people’s doorsteps then shouting ‘ready’ and jumping off. Each new day brings new words and new exciting things to… Read more →
I attended a governor training evening tonight concentrating on the improvement partnerships that will be brought into being Dec 2014. Apparently the government have listened to schools and this is what they have come up with to stop schools feeling isolated. To me it sounds like another committee our over stretched head teachers may be encouraged to join. The budget… Read more →
Every year our school hosts a disco and silent auction. Parents and friends of the school donate prizes which people bid for by writing the amount they would like to pay on a list underneath the prize. The winner is the last amount recorded when the time runs out. This year I won two tickets to the Harrogate fringe festival,… Read more →
Today Sophie-Pi and Annie-Mo were christened at Christ church. Sophie was very excited and had spent a lot of last night reading up on what would occur during the service. Soptic, ‘so the vicar will throw water over me Mama?’ Me,’ Not quite throw darling, more daub’. Dada, ‘yes, it isn’t like it’s the ‘holy bucket challenge’. Sophie, ‘ I… Read more →
Today we had the privilege of meeting bebe Clarence for the first time. He is completely gorgeous and had every lady in the house big and little cooing over him. Sophie got to have the first cuddle. She is amazing with babies and just swoops in and they all adore her.
Sophie and I were in Sports Direct a warehouse clothing store in town. By the tills were boxes of Calvin Klein underpants. As Sophie and I were stood around waiting for a till to become free, I noticed a little one trot up to the display. She took one look at the toned abs and torso of the male model… Read more →
These gorgeous new sparkley shoes are not mine but Sophie-Pi’s. She chose them herself. They have a heel as well as more glitter then is usually allowed in the vicinity of Dada. Sophie is so pleased with them I doubt they will be removed today even in bed. It was with some reservation I viewed her choice of footware. Me,’Are… Read more →
Annie is a big fan of shoes. However she often manages to loose one. Even the shortest of journeys can result in a shoe going missing. If she keeps it up at this rate she will have to learn to hop.
Annie and I visited Aunty Sue at Harewood house today. Aunty Sue had suggested we meet in the restaurant to have some lunch before feeding the penguins. Annie loves birds and for the past couple of days we have been talking about the birds in the Harewood house bird garden and reading books about penguins. Today we even brought our… Read more →
We went for a walk on Sunday to Trollers Gill with our friends Daren, Kirsty and their little ones.
Today was harvest sunday at church. It seems little has changed since I was small and attended the harvest service. People brought cans and food,dusty from the backs of their cupboards to donate to various local charities the church supports. There is many a homeless and less fortunate person who will be tasked with the job of figuring out what… Read more →

It has been a busy few days. On Tuesday, the school Sophie attends, received notification that, at long last, Ofsted were going to pay them a visit. For two years the school has been expecting a visit, so it almost felt like a relief that they were actually coming. Wednesday, Dad and Dennis arrived. It was great to see them… Read more →
